Vermibus - Dissolving Europe
film Première


OPEN WALLS Gallery and PLATOON KUNSTHALLE Berlin cordially invite you to the première of Vermibus' video 'Dissolving Europe' on December 14, 2013 at 19:00.

 

'Dissolving Europe' is the new body of work that stormed Europe earlier this year by artist, Vermibus. using the most common means of travel of young students, Vermibus set out with a dubious inter-rail ticket along with his videographer, Xar Lee and photographer, Thomas von Wittich, a set of 90 homemade keys and his pallet of solvents to physically and temporally highjack advertisements of the western world in the name of fine art.

 

each site is carefully deliberated with its environment, from Rolex boutiques, to archaic museums. the system is simple in movement; unlock and roll to create the first intervention NO-AD then appears; a huge blank gleaming white breath of fresh air in the urban environment materializes. the advert then undertakes the process of counter action painting using a series of solvents and brushes, it is then replaced in another site, another city, another country.

 

the show also features an exclusive black and white series of photos by photographer, Thomas von Wittich, that highlight the Dissolving Europe project.

 

"i met Thomas in 2012 while he was photographing my intervention Vita Propria. his photos were awesome, but experience and skill is not the only thing I am looking for in someone with whom I work. in both my private and professional life I need to be able to work with people who I can trust. in Thomas, I found not only an amazing photographer, but also an expert in his craft. he comes to work with new ideas and contagious energy, but all in all, I found a consistent and kind person - someone who trusts in my work as much as I do. i found a close friend who understands my work and is able to reflect its meaning as well as create an amazing view of his own."

 

the evening will be completed with music by KRTS (Project Mooncircle) and drinks to make it a date.
